Amid new Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s crackdown of slaughterhouses across the state, the Aligarh Muslim University students are now reportedly forced to eat vegetarian food as the authorities have removed meat from the menu.
According to the reports, the students are irked after they were served vegetarian food for the last one week. Students of the university have also reported to the Vice Chancellor reporting about the same. Earlier, the students were given non-vegetarian food twice in a week.
The college has however claimed that the students were not being served meat because the prices of the meat were high.
“This is only temporary. We will hold talks with the students. Meat rates are very high and hence we have resorted to this temporary arrangement,” Public relations officer, Omar Peerzada told OneIndia. The authorities have further asserted that the situation has also risen with the meat shop owners going on an indefinite strike adding that out of 9 only 4 shops are working in the area.
